Graham,

This thread seems to have run pretty cold now for 12 months or so. Have there been any updates or progress towards a pre? I am interested in the Proprius, however I would need to also find myself a good preamp to deal with them and the source material (Phono and CD).

I was considering a passive pre, but then found this thread and my interest was sparked :)

Thanks for any updates

Dan


Originally a preamp was defined as something with gain sufficient to amplify small signals to the level required to drive a power amplifier. Hence the name pre - amp(lifier).

But then came along some wannabes incapable of doing anything involving electronics, but really good at marketing, and presented a switch box with no gain, just attenuation via a volume control, and decided it would sound cool calling it a passive preamp.

I can think of another word beginning with W! And as for those who support them??

It has meant that people like me get a smaller bite of the cherry, and therefore struggle with the costs involved in R&D, as is needed to develop a full range of products... including a preamp.

And if insufficient numbers buy our existing products attention drifts away from R&D towards competing with marketing (the winner being a certain tech giant).

It costs money to develop a preamp or anything really, and although I have the abilities, without financial resources (stolen from me by wannabes), then we get nowhere.

Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...
